I just want to say that I like the approach to distinguish between important
and not so important packages and to remove packages with RC bugs without
maintainer action within some reasonable time. I hope that more RC bug fixing
will be done before the freeze. IMO Debian has become to big to handle
essential and leaf packages equally.
